Re: Can’t enter UK within 30 days due to coronavirus

Many thanks for responses so far - seems like we are going to have a wait and see what happens over the coming weeks. Regarding the accomodation requirement, this was done using my mother’s address, however, as she is in her 70’s it is far from ideal for us to both move in there at the current time...

Re: Can’t enter UK within 30 days due to coronavirus

Hello, my US-based wife has been granted a spouse visa to join me in the UK. She needs to enter the country within 30 days, so by 24th April 2020. She has already had one flight cancelled as a result of the pandemic. I am also concerned that if she does make it over, we will struggle to find somewh...

I don’t think someone can answer this question as I’m sure HO doesn’t have the answer yet. Let’s just hope they will come up with some reasonable solution

Re: PERMANENT RESIDENCE AFFECT ON BRITISH NATURLISATION

There doesn't seem to be any problem. The curtailment letter itself is not a bad thing. You've applied for your EEA status before the date stated in that letter, so you never overstayed. Assuming the letter wasn't saying something like "you misused the visa" or "you are not genuine student" or somet...

Re: EEA family permit asked for extra documents

When I was applying for EEA FP, no one asked me for the original of my sponsor passport. I’m even not sure how this would be technically possible as I was outside of UK (maybe if he sent it directly to HO in the UK then?) Proofs of relationship (marriage certificate, photos, WhatsApp etc), as well a...

Re: Visa expiry and corona virus

Without an official statement, you have to leave the country before the expiration of your leave. You cannot just assume by yourself that the current situation will justify an overstay. Agreed however, are there flights available? As mentioned, an official statement is most definately required. I h...

Re: Heartless government to increase IHS from £400 to £625 as part of hostile policy

IHS shouldn't be increased because new EU nationals along with their family members from next year will hopefully start paying it as well. After EU migration will become difficult to blame, the government will need to find some other "enemy of the state". I assume coronavirus is currently an ideal ...

Re: Schengen visa granted (business) but may not travel first destination

From my experience, if you give valid and sane explanations at border, no consequences at all. They will ask you why you are not traveling to Belgium and you shall explain re postponing of conference. Better don’t say it was cancelled. If asked just confirm that you still have intentions to travel t...

Re: 10 years visit visa with passport valid till Jan 2028

I would take more stepped approach: applying for 10 years visa after a one visa of 6 months is a bit too extreme. Try getting 1 or 2 years visa, then 5 years. For me expiration date of the passport wasn’t an issue. My passport expires in March 2023, I’ve got visa till September 2023. I don’t know th...
